Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery

Aim, Scope and Topics

Discrete geometry plays an expanding role in the fields of shape modelling, image synthesis, and image analysis. It deals with topological and geometrical definitions of digitized objects or digitized images and provides both a theoretical and computational framework for computer imaging.
This special issue of DAM is dedicated to the 16th International Conference on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery (DGCI 2011) which was held in Nancy, France, on April 6-8, 2011.

This special issue will focus on new advances in Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery covering different aspects of image analysis. The call for papers is not limited to the participants of the conference and is open to all papers related to the main theme of the event. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
